Donald Trump's thinking face.


YAY! Buzzfeed has committed a Thanksgiving miracle, by breaking a story about how General H.R. McMaster, Donald Trump's national security adviser, thinks Donald Trump is a fucking moron. If this story is true (WHOA IF TRUE), McMaster is being correct like a common Rex Tillerson in making that assessment!

Let's learn the dirty deets:

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster mocked President Trump’s intelligence at a private dinner with a powerful tech CEO, according to five sources with knowledge of the conversation.

Over a July dinner with Oracle CEO Safra Catz ... McMaster bluntly trashed his boss, said the sources, four of whom told BuzzFeed News they heard about the exchange directly from Catz. The top national security official dismissed the president variously as an “idiot” and a “dope” with the intelligence of a “kindergartner,” the sources said.

Buzzfeed reports it has a sixth source who says McMaster talked shit about Trump in private, "including that the president lacked the necessary brainpower to understand the matters before the National Security Council." LOL if true!

Can we all take a moment to enjoy how wonderful this story is? Because all the other news today sucks.

This is us right now.

This is us right now.

OK, that's out of our system. (OR IS IT?)

The White House and Oracle are issuing the prerequisite denials, because they WOULD do that. You're not supposed to say Trump is stupid out loud, especially when you are H.R. McMaster and you are theoretically one of the "sane" ones keeping Trump from nuking a small European country because "Fox & Friends" said it made fun of him:

The meeting, Oracle senior VP for government affairs Ken Glueck said, was about China, and “none of the statements attributed to General McMaster were said.” Glueck added that Catz “concurs entirely” with his account of the dinner.

Glueck responded to repeated inquiries only after BuzzFeed News contacted the NSC. And according to two sources with knowledge of the situation, administration officials threatened to retaliate against several figures with knowledge of the July dinner if they spoke to BuzzFeed News. Asked whether he had made his statement under pressure from the administration, Glueck responded, “ridiculous.”

Just ridiculous! We cannot imagine the Trump White House would threaten people with personal knowledge of high-ranking cabinet officials correctly saying Donald Trump is a fucking moron. (That does sound like the Trump White House, though.)

According to Buzzfeed, McMaster's naughty cusses that night weren't just about Trump. If this account is true, McMaster was the living embodiment that night of "If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me":

... [T]hree of the sources said that McMaster disparaged multiple members of the administration to Catz, including Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, and President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. Of Kushner, one source told BuzzFeed News, McMaster said he had no business being in the White House and should not be involved in national security issues.

“[Catz] said the conversation was so inappropriate that it was jaw dropping,” another source told BuzzFeed News.

Oh no, he was talking dirty about Tillerson and Mattis? That is rude and they should all have a beer summit so they can make friends again.

He's totally right about Bannon and that idiot Jared, though.

The New York Times this weekend brought us a case study of how Donald Trump's family separation policy tore apart just one family last year, although this particular example is notable because it involves the youngest child known -- so far -- to have been taken from his parents at the US-Mexico border. Little Constantin Mutu was just four months old when he was taken from his father, Vasile, a Romanian seeking asylum in the USA, having believed all that outdated crap about the Statue of Liberty being the "Mother of Exiles." What a sap! We're not letting those tempest-tossed takers push US around any more!

Constantin was taken from his dad in February of 2018, a good two months before the Trump administration officially announced the family separation policy -- but which we now know had been operating covertly since the summer of 2017 before it was expanded last year. Vasile and Florentina Mutu, members of the Roma ethnic minority, came to the US seeking asylum after Florentina found out that when she'd had a C-section while giving birth to Constantin, the doctors had also sterilized her without her knowing it. She said she was handed papers while she was foggy from the pain of labor, and had no idea what she was signing, and reporter Caitlin Dickerson notes "human rights groups have documented the practice of forced sterilizations" of Roma elsewhere in Europe.

And the Mutus had heard all sorts of wonderful things about America, too. They made a living by leaving their village and begging or doing short-term labor around Europe, then going home, where life was less expensive, but some people from their village had reputedly gone to the US and become rich, although maybe those stories were exaggerated. Still,
